Hey JCooper! I was just perusing Butch's profile, and I saw your comment! I think I know what your problem is, and I had some trouble with it as well. On your profile, you can change your profile picture using edit 'profile picture' on the left of the screen when the User CP is up. The profile picture is not the same as the picture that posts with your name in the forums. To change that picture-like the hologram that Butch has under his name in threads, go to the User CP, and look at 'edit avatar' I think that's what you've been looking for.
And Butch is correct-If you want to post pictures in a thread, definitely use photobucket, as the GT attachments limit you to a few nice pictures.
That's the Glock Hologram....basically a paper weight. Team Glock sells them.
It's hard to take a picture of them, but here's another I just took.
Do you have your picture on a web site? Like Photobucket? Go to any post on the forum with a photo showing and click the 'QUOTE' button at the bottom right of the post, it will then open a reply window in which it quote what the person wrote in his post. It will also show the web address of the photo posted with the image tags on both ends [/IMG] on the back, and [IMG] on the front.
Photobucket gives you the image link you need under your pics after you've down loaded them, you need only copy the link and paste it into your post.
If you have a pic on another web site that's not a photo host type, let me know and I'll try to explain how to do it with that. Otherwise, if you want to post direct from your computer, you can attach the pic by going to the attachments box below the reply window. Then it will open as a thumbnail in the post that has to be clicked to enlarge it.
It's actually real easy after you do it a couple times! Good luck!
